About Katie Evans

For over 30 years, Katie has been a keynote speaker and seminar leader for many corporations, organizations and professional associations at the state, regional and national level.
She specializes in Women in Leadership.  Research shows that too often women don’t speak up and “toot their own horn.”  Culturally they have been taught that “good girls” behave in certain ways that are detrimental to becoming great leaders.  Katie shows women how to be a bit more assertive (for the shy women) and a lot more assertive (for those who are more able to be so, just don’t know how), all of which leads to increased productivity, greater employee retention and significantly less bullying in the workplace.
Katie has written for several publications and blogs and has hosted 2 radio shows in the Seattle area.  She has been a  guest on many different television and radio shows, speaking about habit change, “What NOT to buy a woman for Christmas” and stress reduction. She was been interviewed many times on grief and loss as well.
In 1987, Katie created The Living Lite Wellness Centers, Inc.  At Living Lite, they help people lose weight in a healthy way, through classes.  These classes are easily adaptable to the Corporate learning structure.
Katie has taken what she learned in decades of helping women “succeed beyond their wildest dreams” and adapted the lessons to women seeking leadership roles within the corporate structure.  Her class, “Creating Women Leaders from the Inside Out” helps women, men and business benefit from the diversity of thinking when women ascend the “corporate ladder.”
In 2012, Katie created the Wellness Fund to help charities raise money through her classes and lectures. See what those who have benefited from Katie’s work have to say.
